These include items such as:

  • Extensive landscaping to reduce the urban heat island effect
  • Rate control and treatment of stormwater runoff
  • Reduction of the 100-year flood plain in a heavily populated urban environment
  • Xeriscaping to reduce irrigation needs
  • Provided many multi-modal transportation elements
  • Improved connectivity between neighborhoods
  • New venue of the arts and events
  • Encourages healthy lifestyles

So join us for this exciting, informative, and fun tour of Cascades Park! Bring your questions and plenty of business cards!

The group will meet at the Amphitheater at 11:15 a.m.

Please come out and support your local USGBC Chapter and enjoy this outstanding GREENworking opportunity.
